Here are some places you can’t miss on your next trip to Brookside:


Bella Napoli

Bella Napoli is a cozy Italian joint located in the heart of Brookside. The dish you can’t miss? The pizza! It’s got a thinner, crispy crust that has just the right amount of crunch. The flavor of the dough really shines through and makes this one of the best pizza’s in town!



This fun boutique is a highlight of any shopping trip to Brookside. Shopgirls carries a wide array of fun clothing and accessories that you cannot find anywhere else in KC. Be sure to stop in everytime you go to Brookside, as their inventory is constantly rotating in new beautiful items!

Another uniquely Brookside store is a store called Stuff. While the merchandise here is awesome, the best part about this store is the staff. They are knowledgeable about their products and seem to know everything about their extensive inventory without having to look it up.
